ASUS Z8NA-D6C (Intel 5500) Motherboard - The Box and What's Inside

With so many single socket motherboards floating around, we thought we would try a little dual CPU fun this time around.

Package and Contents

 

I like the clean and very exotic look of some of the WS boards. This one in particular has a great look to it. Black and glossy like a sports car with a graphic on the front to drive home that feeling. You get very little in the way of a hard-sell on the front of the box.

That does not mean it is not there; it is all hidden under the front flap. In an odd departure, the "features listing" is in a very large and "shouting" font. When I opened this up I felt like it was yelling at me. Once you get past the volume, this list does show off some of the reasons to pick up the Z8NA-D6C.

The back of the box breaks down the two types of Z8NA-D6 Boards you can get. We have the D6C, while the D6 is a much more powerful product with remote management and an LSI SAS RAID controller built in.

After viewing all of that, you find that the top is just a slip cover with an almost identical box underneath (without the front flap).

The D6C does not come with much in the way of accessories; just a few SATA Cables, the manual, driver DVD-ROM and an I/O plate.
